gore got about half a million more votes than george w. bush. but he lost florida by 537 votes as all of our viewers remember, and as a result, george w. bush had enough to win the more than 270 you need to be elected president of the united states and so you could have a situation that would develop in this particular case, maybe romney would win the popular vote but obama would win the electoral college. it wouldn't be the first time and that is certainly a possibility at this point. these national polls, when you add them all together and do an average of all the polls, i have learned over the years that they are pretty accurate among likely voters. but what matters is the battleground states, what the polls are there. and there's only one poll that really counts and that is the poll that takes place on tuesday. so we'll know soon enough. >> a national poll showing romney's national favorability at 53%, just shy of obama at 54%, there used to be a much greater gap there, are we saying that turn decideds are certainly playing a role in a big way here? >> yes, i think that usually, i

time that president george h. w. bush ran. even though we have a republican governor and a state house controlled by republicans, the senate and the house. we always seem to be trending below, but at the last-minute presidential campaigns tend to show up here. the obama campaign calls it a hail mary pass. itaromney campaign colzalls move in a place the polls are narrowing. that would tell me he thinks pennsylvania is in play. president clinton will be here tomorrow doing several stops in pennsylvania. he is one of the most of powerful political surrogates that president obama has. he's very popular in pennsylvania. i do not think we will see the president here. if he shows up, that is proof positive that pennsylvania could go either way. host: pennsylvania considered a battleground, but it is trending below and looking like it is going to be in obama's corner. -- but it is trending blue. describe what is going on in pennsylvania vs. ohio. guest: it has been much quieter. we have more surrogacy coming in and they draw smaller clowrowds. they pack the stadium, like you are seeing t

are neither red nor are blue. barack obama won the state last time by five points. george bush won it twice and bill clinton won it twice. we have a little advantage and it is that energy and enthusiasm that i talked about earlier that we see on the campaign trail. i think we have a good ground game in place. ultimately it is about the passion and heart of the volunteers. i spent a lot of time with them this year. i think we will win this. i think it will be close but i think at the end of the day there will be a victory in ohio and so goes ohio more than likely so goes the country. >> mike: certainly it has been that way time and time again. it is tight but tipping one way or the other is it the issue or emotion of the voters and just the intensity that will put, ohio, in the romney column? >> the concern here in ohio is although we are doing a little better than the national average as mary talked about earlier, things are still rough here in ohio. we are still on the wrong track. we still have a lot more potential we can achieve with leadership from washington. and people unders

. sort of put a face on the nameless christian right. christian right responsible for electing george bush. for us, we went in and met these children and their families. we realized pretty quickly that these were the so-called foot soldiers for the right wing of the republican party. they also just believers and religious people and you know, going to the beat of their own drum. really, it was eye opening for us. we really tried to just paint the picture of how things are with these communities without passing any judgment. >> i saw that documentary and he question as i was watching, why did this camp let you in? >> the families are proud how they raised their kids. becky fishers believes very strongly she's saving souls and she's bringing children to the lord. actually when we went to each family's home, long before the film premiered, we make it our business to go and show the final films the sum of our film. the first thing becky fisher, head of the camp said was, kind of watered it down. no one is going to watch this, it's so boring. i said becky, i come to you from a secular plan
